Crackerbox

Surprise! No electronic music on this Netlabel! Apparently created in 1779, Crackerbox is a loosely connected group of basement-recording geeks and audio-plundering losers. With members as widespread as California, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and a headquarters in Arkansas, they truly are all around us. Their numbers have reached the millions at times, but presently they are hard to gauge. The bands release their own albums and often collaborate or members go solo, creating a plethora of side projects that Jim Santo has a problem keeping straight. Slowly, we will be adding albums as we get permission to put them online. Oh, didn't you know Crackerbox.net is a website, too?

From June 2002 to June 2003, Crackerbox.net hosted a series of weekly deathmatches pitting songs by basement recording artists up against each other. Fans voted for their favorite each week. Waiting for the winner was a gold medal, presidential phone calls, generous gifts from our sponsors, and all the other spoils that come with a blood-soaked victory. But pity the poor loser, who became destined to face a lifetime of eternal shame. This compilation features the big winners, underdogs and fan...
